31 December

We are always warned around this time of year of the dangers of drink driving. Here at Primary Care Professionals, we do wish you a happy new year, but we also wish you a safe one.

Many cases are seen every year to the police and paramedics of those who still disregard the warnings to not drink and drive. It has been featured in the news this week that A&E have to deal with drunk issues more consistently, and it needs attention.

We understand the hectic and dangerous nature of drink driving cases:

– Last year 3296 failed a breathalyser test

– Deaths by drink driving had a 26% rise

– One in six road deaths last year was alcohol-related.

The local police have released a statement to remind us all of the consequences of these reckless decisions.

“The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit will be conducting breathalyser checks round the clock throughout December – supporting the national Christmas drink drive campaign. Motorists found to be driving while under the influence of drink or drugs face a minimum of a 12-month disqualification from driving, as well as a fine and/or imprisonment. The offence of causing death by careless driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs now carries a maximum penalty of 14 years’ imprisonment and a disqualification of at least two years.”[1]

To prevent danger, and to ensure your safety this new years eve:

  • Assign a designated driver or pre-book a taxi
  • Buy some nice non-alcoholic beverages if you are the driver
  • Limit your alcohol intake
  • Buy your own breathalyser
  • Drink in consideration, with water and eating a meal before.

We want all emergency and medical staff to bring in their new year without any casualties, and for no one enjoying themselves to become a patient.

Let’s drink safely, and have ourselves a great way to bring in the New Year!
